NCAA oversight committee to propose November 25 start date

The NCAA’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee will propose a start date of November 25 to the Division I Council for the 2020-21 season, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein. 

Per Rothstein, the committee will also propose no college basketball scrimmages and exhibitions due to health and safety reasons tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The college basketball season was initially scheduled to start November 10. 

Reports of the possible start of college basketball season come amid general uncertainty about how sports can proceed. Some major conferences, such as both the Big Ten and Pac-12, have postponed their fall sports seasons. The Pac-12, in particular, postponed all athletic competitions until at least the end of this calendar year, meaning that both men’s and women’s basketball among other sports will be impacted. Other major conferences, however, are still proceeding with their fall seasons.
